Visiting Scholars

The Research Council has the following two deadlines each year for the Visiting Scholar applications: March – the 2nd Friday of the month (Applications accepted for visits/lectures/symposia that will be held in July – December of the same year) AND October – the 2nd Friday of the month  (Applications accepted for visits/lectures/symposia that will be held in January – June of the following year). Preference will be given to proposals contributing most directly to research being done at UNL and to those which benefit the most people. Under the Visiting Scholar/Symposia/Distinguished Lecturer programs the Research Council will support no more than four visitors per department during a six-month period.

This program supports visiting scholars who are recognized for excellence in their fields and whose research and scholarly activities are closely related to the research interests of the faculty and graduate students at UNL.  Each visitor is to give at least one lecture that is open free-of-charge and advertised to the entire University community. The Research Council requests that every consideration be given to having scholars visit when a maximum number of people are present on campus.

Visiting Scholars will be reimbursed for airfare and actual expenses for lodging and meals up to $130 per day for up to a two-day stay in Lincoln. No visitor may receive more than $800 per application. Honoraria will not be provided and should be sought from sources other than the Research Council. Preference will be given to proposals contributing most directly to research being done at UNL and to those which benefit the most people. Under this program the Research Council will support no more than four visitors per department during a six-month period.

The new application form, which features electronic approval and routing, is accessible through NUgrant under the Apply heading on the Research Council home page. Applications must be submitted through NUgrant; paper applications will no longer be accepted.
